A vicious anti-infantry variant, the origin of the Flea "Fire Ant" is a mystery, with Earthwerks denying the design. It was first seen in the Chaos March, most notably in urban fighting on Carver V, in 3063 and none were spotted after 3068. Possibly the predecessor to the 19 and 20, the exact configuration is not known (if one even exists, as it seems to be a refit variant of sorts). The typical Fire Ant refit removed half a ton of armor in favor of six Machine Guns and three Flamers. It was thought to be a designated pacification unit, in the sense of a SecurityMech, as opposed to a frontline BattleMech design.
